Milonga will be at Birmingham Hippodrome for two days only from May 26 to 27. It is one of many international dance shows to grace the stage at the Hippodrome as part of its move to forge more links with dance companies at home and abroad.
The 40-year-old choreographer hails from Antwerp in Belgium and gained acclaim for winning the 2014 Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Dance Production with Babel (Words) and Puz/zle.
His eclectic work has included collaborations with Akram Khan, Antony Gormley and the Chinese Shaolin monks but this time, the choreographer is focussing on the passion and intensity of South American tango.
Milonga was originally a lively musical genre dating back to as long ago as the 1870's and originating in the South American countries of Argentina and Uruguay.
